From a reader:
Amidst your daily take on all things Williams I’m hoping you might be willing to insert a reference to a summer event nearby. Southshire Community School in nearby North Bennington, VT is hosting a benefit concert by Grace Potter who leads the Vermont based band “Grace Potter and the Nocturnals”. I’ve included the mini-blurb below as well as the event press release and show poster.
I’d be grateful if you would consider running a quick story on the event. The Williams connection? A few professors every year choose to send their students to Southshire. Last year the school population had two students who were the children of current professors and two who were the children of a former professor – that was 10% of the total student body in our very small 40 child school.
A stretch? Maybe – but for any Williams folks in town this summer this will be a fantastic event.
Indeed. More details below:
Join us for a very special solo performance by Vermont musical sensation Grace Potter of “Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.” on July 10th at 8:00 PM.
Tickets are available exclusively online at http://gracepotter.eventbrite.com/
This is a rare chance to see Grace up close and personal in the intimate setting of the beautiful Deane Carriage Barn on the campus of Bennington College in Bennington, VT.
In addition, we’ll be hosting a “Meet and Greet” with the artist for an additional fee. This event will take place from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at a nearby location to be determined.
All concert proceeds will benefit Southshire Community School of North Bennington, Vermont
